Disabled Vietnam Vet Denied WeaponPurchase In Background Check Debacle
Disabled Vietnam Veteran, award winning author and contributor to Freedom Outpost Leon Puissegur was turned down for the purchase of a weapon he was going to use for hog hunting by the National Instant Criminal Background Check System (NICS). The peculiar thing about the denial was that it was based on an incident that never happened, but since the denial more fabricated charges have come up in the NICS system against Mr. Puissegur. If you are considering supporting stricter background checks, I suggest you read the problems these can cause for law abiding citizens, including veterans.
In a phone interview with Puissegur, he told Freedom Outpost, “Our government wants a more robust background check. Yet, they seem to have a very serious problem just doing a normal background check.”
